Can I add one more comment? That delivery truck at night? TOTAL FAKE. We would NEVER do that and have no reason to. The producer needed drama and other than an occasional fight between my kids, we really don't have any drama around here. LOL Making a big to do about delivering food at night would, he thought, illustrate opsec. And, remember, the audience they were going for are NOT the survivalists/preppers out there!
Oh, one other thing. Someone emailed me and asked about the whole evacuation thing. Not everyone in America has a friend or family member who owns a farm or lives on acreage in a little rural town. If we want to bug out to a relative's home, we'll have to hightail it to Texas, some 1500 miles away. Not impossible but also not the most practical thing when TSHF.
Because we live in the Phoenix area, we are a virtual island surrounded by hundreds of miles of desert and there are very few routes out of town. We have two young kids. Exactly how are we supposed to evacuate? On foot? On our bikes? If there ever were a worst case disaster in Phoenix, the safest place to be will be at home, NOT on one of the 3 or 4 routes out of town, especially in the summer.
It's not that we haven't discussed getting out of Dodge but I'd rather face whatever may happen in Phoenix, than face 200 miles of desert. Some preppers have no choice but to hunker down, and at the moment, that includes us. And then, of course, we have our security plans, which we didn't discuss with NatGeo.
I probably should be writing this on my blog.
